The Christian Catalyst Collection - VIPS - Alister E. McGrath
Alister E. McGrath was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 1953. He was raised a Christian, but by age thirteen hated Christianity and embraced Marxism. He joined the Oxford Inter-Collegiate Christian Union, and as a result became a Christian at the age of eighteen. He found that Christianity "really gives shape, direction and purpose to the rest of your life," and that "Christianity has enormous depth."
